White orange and blue make a lovely contrast.

a wonderful use of complementary colours! i can always appreciate a nice combination of light and dark, and this palette is no exception. :D

This is beautiful, makes me think of flowers growing in the spring. I love the reds on the blue. Just so lovely!

a lovely play on neutral beiges and greys. also, i've never been able to get the hang of extracting a good palette from a picture, so i always make a point of applauding those who can! :3

I just love this one because it's so bright and fresh, and a little inspiring too. I'd just love this sort of colour scheme in my kitchen so much!

Caramel_Vanilla
when i first saw this palette, i swear i could almost actually taste caramel and vanilla in my mouth! :o
it's hard to create a four-colour palettes that feel complete, but you've done it with this one!

Adore the orange and pinks! I would absolutely love a smoothie that had these colors involved! They are soft and blend really well together! <3 <3

This is great. It makes me hope that when I go to heaven there are angels who sing and serve orange sherbet! I love the blend of the colors! You are so talented you just make me wanna love all of your work. This is about the color lover above me correct? Not just the palette ;)!

when paired with the beige and dark plum, the bright reds convey a sense of urgency and really get your attention. this palette is named well and all in all, i really love it!

watermelon_dreams
I love the ebbing, dreamy quality of the greens, followed by that sudden, summery pop of red. Beautiful colours, perfectly named. :)

WinterLover

Sooo loving this right here...

Fly_Away_With_Me

I cannot take myself away from the blend! (I try to look through a lot of the artist's work but this immediately caught my attention) I LOVE blends with blues and purples, and it is so bright, yet soothing and very inviting. And if you know me, I'm all about the name of palettes, and colors, etc. Not only does the palette have an amazing name but this...

We_Have_Wings

It has all my love right now (it is the amazing stripe of color right next to the purple). If I could hug palettes, I would hug this one right now. Great job praxicalidocious! :)

SO, I feel like I should start this one off with a disclaimer: I honestly don't know if I've showcased this one before, but I love it so much, I just can't help myself. @_@
That being said...
I LOVE THIS!!! xD It's almost become iconic for me, in a way. I see it and I recognise it right off the bat. The colors are perfect. The widths are perfect. It's just so RIGHT. In its own right, it seems to represent all the drama it represents rather well, but at the same time, it's just so bright and exciteing! I mean, just seeing it in your archives got me all excited, lol! xD It's like running into a celebrity! My weirdness aside, it's just wonderful. Lovely. MUCH love for this! =D

I just love this. The peachy colours look so calming and serene and then there's the grey and the turquoise which gives off a 50's feel (which I just love on its own). It's a perfect colour palette for this summer.

Hey_Soul_Sister
I love the bluey greys with the dark colours and blood red. It's very rich and deep, I love the contrast. P.S - click the rotate button and it really pops!

Strangers_Myths

Love the way the blues in between bring the first and the last color together. Seems very poetic to me! Gorgeous! Love it loads :)

Unknown_Story

Stellar combination of harsh and soft colors. The mint green and the brownish orange blend wonderfully!

Fame_Grows_Double
a very interesting combination of bright red and dark greens and browns! they complement each other surprisingly well, and the title is very poetic-sounding and matches the palette perfectly. :)

This is lovely. Classic, calm, cool, nice, tranquil. And it flows seemlessley- PERFECT transition, which is not easy to do. Well played. =)

1. I don't care whether you support my campaign or not. Besides, thoughts of witch hunts, branding irons, welts, etc. are perverse, those pictures all come from you, I deny them. My ultimate rebuke, after a lot of explaining, and encouragement, tells someone I can't respect their actions because they violate my code of honor, after which I ignore them until they shape up. I don't go any further. So it's best you don't participate in the proposed action. If that is the way you think, I certainly would never hire you for faculty in a private school.

2. Damages in euros etc. I am not discussing. I'm talking about Art. Best practices, and originality. If someone doesn't care about those after mild and mannered discussion, when you confront them with date stamped proof of their actions, then I cannot further respect them as an artist. I'm free to speak my mind about that. That doesn't mean I want them to quit the site or go jump off a bridge, certainly not hang them. That just means I know how they behave going forward, and I'm free to form an opinion about them. People can form whatever opinion about me in return, based on my art, actions and deeds. I've worked hard to become an asset to this site. I like to think I have earned respect because of it. But I never count on it.

3. I don't care whether you could follow every minute of this discussion for two weeks. I don't care that my discussion about and endorsement of appropriate shame appears in a forum that appears around the world. That's what public forums are for. People should be able to speak their minds, right or wrong, and be able to freely make mistakes, or conversely, excellent points. When a topic has had no action for two weeks, you should understand it's a dead topic. If you revive it, you beat a dead horse, or you're trying to begin a new horse beating. I bet you didn't even look at the date. That is on you.

4. You are correct that memories attatched to shaming are carried for a long time, that is my point. "If my mother had caught me doing such a thing, she would have tanned my behind." "My old teacher would have had a heart attack." "My grandparents would be rolling in their graves." "My sister would have been so disappointed in me," etc. Those are generally good lessons, that we have internalized, admitted to, and grown past. Administered to us by people who care.

If you propose, I will support your shaming campaign so long as we can make branding irons, heat them up, and burn the imprints into the foreheads of those an angry mob decides are offenders.

Intellectual property claims, whether exact duplicates, are absolutely irrelevant given the nature of this site. Why in the world would you post things to a site like this hoping people, all over the world, would respect your rights? Some of them live in countries that do not have to by the way.

And how have you, save for your ego, been damaged by all this? You have lost millions of euros or dollars through plagarism on this site? Sorry, but you just seem too emotionally charged to be rational.

This is plain and simple, dangerous and stupid. Beyond that, as I have said before, you could really hurt somebody if you are wrong in your witch hunt. It is usually much to late to say sorry to someone when its over because, you know? They would be damaged goods from your crusade.

PS. Sorry I could not follow this discussion every minute for two weeks. Sometimes I have other places to visit and other sites on which to spend my time and attention. I really appreciated your observation though so I read all the comments over the two weeks. I think I am up to speed.

PSS. Shaming anyone builds the memories they will remember later; even if they survive the shaming, hazing, shunning or whatever you want to call it. Such encounters shape their lives and attitudes forever and always. They might forgive, but they will always remember.

If you are talking about me, I am flattered. I have never been called both at the same time as I remember. Thank you so much!

If you are done breathing fire out your nose, and can ever possibly calm down? Could you bring yourself to listen to those trying to help you in this? May I suggest something to you? With fire extinguisher in hand? And a dragon slayer on the roof of my condo building?

If you are not already a member, think about joining the Graphic Artists Guild. It is one of the best artists' rights orgs in the US. Members get all sorts of benefits including legal advice (to a point) in a pinch. Lots of pattern repeat designers are members. You might get more enthusiasm there but not for a shaming campaign.

That website is brilliant, Deslyn! Thank you for sharing it with us.

One website I use frequently is encycolorpedia.com. You might want to input your color there and then check out the pentadic or hexadic sections. This will give you different colors all around the color wheel that complement the original color in some way, and each color is of the exact same saturation and lightness levels, which is what I believe you're looking for. You would want to alter the "S" and "V", but not the "H". Here is an example of the color you gave here:
